Louise-Anne van 't Riet's infinity table is designed for people who never tidy up.

Details: Her Infinitum table is an Arduino-powered light table that turns on when items are placed on it, but turns off when they are removed (Arduino is a tiny open-source computer).

Says the designer, "This infinity table is designed for people who never tidy up and who leave their belongings everywhere."

"When objects are placed on the table, it lights up--providing a beautiful backdrop for the artifacts with an illusion of infinite depth."

The illusion of infinite space is in stark contrast with the finite space most of us live in.

Users are encouraged to tidy up before they leave a room, since the light table will only switch off once everything is removed from its surface.

The table has a piezo sensor switch which converts vibration to voltage, and when activated, lights up the LEDs. The vibration of an object being set on the table triggers the sensor.

The piezo, as well as the LEDs, are both connected to an Arduino computer hidden under the surface, accessible through the underside of the table.
